Did you listen to the secret reader story yesterday?
Click on the link below to find out more.
Have you got some ice cubes in your freezer? If not, get some ready now for the science experiment later on!
Challenge of the day!
Draw a picture of something that makes you happy.
Please note that we will be recapping Phase 2 and Phase 3 phonics for the first part of this term. I will try to do this in different ways using Twinkl and the good old internet!! If your child is confident with reading the sounds in these words then please help them to write them using correct letter formation! This will be the beginnings of them learning to spell!
There is also a writing task at the end of the phonics lesson. I am very conscious that we must keep going with our writing and forming our letters correctly. If your child does the writing task easily encourage them to write another sentence.
I would love to see your efforts on Tapestry.
This icon will help your child to remember what to do when they are writing a sentence.
You say this sentence and your child writes it down. Look out for tricky words and sound out each word.
I can look at the map.
Challenge 1 - if your child can write this sentence easily add in some extra information e.g. I can look at the map to find the animals.
Challenge 2 - Can they write another sentence about a map?
I am beginning to count to 100
I can recognise number order to 10
o Lay cards with numbers on in a line 1 to 10
o Ask your child to turn around or else blindfold them!
o Swap two numbers, e.g. the 4 and the 9.
o Ask the child to count along the line and to tell you when they reach a number which is in the wrong place.
o Then they continue counting until they reach another mis-placed number.
o Can they then say which two numbers have been swapped?
o Repeat this, three times. They can do it for you too.
Challenge - Can you use numbers to 15 or 20
I can observe and comment on changes
Now have a go yourself!
Ask an adult for some icecubes from the freezer and get some salt.
If you have some food colouring that would be great or you could use some paint.
Have fun watching how the salt melts the ice.
I would love to see how it goes - please post on Tapestry.
